Smalls SAL - February Fairy

Hi all, 

Thanks for all your lovely comments in my last post.  I have completed the february fairy for Smalls SAL.  I took nearly 3 1/2 hours to stitch this fairy.  

The free chart for the fairies can be found here.

Both January and February fairies together.  I have to add the second line to the border for the January fairy.

I am working on the second block on the Rainbow SAL.  Also I am ready for three Ta..da.. moments.  Will come up with the finished kutch work bag in my next post.

I am linking this post to Smalls SAL link party hosted by Heather.  Hop over there to see other smalls.

Pillow covers, kutch motif

Hope all r doing good.   Today I have been here to show you two sets of pillow covers with kasuti embroidery border and a stencilled border.  The stencilled patch was also done loooooooooong back.  Only now the time has come to attach those patches and borders to fabric to be sewn into a pillow case.  Happy with the outcome.

For the red one I followed the tutorial here in youtube.  For the stencilled one I have sewed it in the normal way.  But for the side seams I used french seams.

Also I have done with a kutch work motif.
  Going to quilt the piece and 
i am going to make a bag out of it.

I had some fabrics in my stash and tried paper piecing hexagon.  It came out well.  I will show  that in my next post .  Till then happy embroidering.
